Broccoli and Cheddar Cheese Quiche-Quiche is so easy to make and the combinations are endless!
Please tell me I’m not the only one who will cook/bake something just to justify (and show off) a new baking dish.
It’s finally spring. And the weatherman is promising some spring weather soon. I’m really slack when it comes to doing big Easter baskets for my kids. As long as they get some candy, they’re happy.
This year I used their cereal bowls as baskets and stuffed enough sugar wrapped in cute plastic to put them in comas for a day or two.
And they were happy.
Besides, it’s not like they did’t know I’d be hitting up the day after sales for more candy.
I told the girls where we were going and what we were looking for. And that’s all we were shopping for. I didn’t want to deal with any pouty faces when I had to start saying “no, that’s not what we’re here for.”
First stop Hobby Lobby, had to check out their Easter sales. I found a cute little cake stand and then a new tablecloth for my kitchen table, score! I never left the first few isles. In and out, don’t wander around, that’s how you end up spending way more than you planned.
Next Stop Target. Straight back to the holiday candy. M&Ms, Snickers, Peeps, Jelly Beans, even that cute hand towel pictured above. Now that we have the holiday section out of the way, time for some girl shopping, you know, the clothes, shoes, make-up, other incidentals. Girl stuff.
Score on the shoes, I had 3 pairs for me in the cart but after walking around with them did finally decide on just one pair. The girls found cute shoes too. Was disappointed in the spring clothes but Grace did get a cute outfit.
Over by the makeup, while the girls are checking out the nail polish, I spot it. By one of those price checker things. I love the turquoise color! I already have a tart pan but mine has short sides and is a 10 inch. I don’t really need another one.
A quick scan at the price check tells me for $5.00 I can have this baby? I can’t believe whoever left it here, well, left it. Not me, into the cart it goes.
Back at home I have to use it, I have to show off my new tart pan. And it does make a beautiful Quiche.
- 1 pie crust (store bought or homemade)
- 6 eggs

- In separate bowl combine eggs, cream salt and pepper. With hand mixer, whip for about 1 minute.

- Bake for 35-40 minutes until center is set. Remove from oven and let sit for 10 minutes before slicing.
Now I have to introduce you to my friend Ashton over at Something Swanky.
Isn’t she pretty? She’s got a sweet tooth almost as big as mine (just check out her Hershey Kisses round up or her Browned Butter Brownies) and a heart that’s way bigger. She’s always there to help a friend, any time, any way she can.
If Ashton we’re close by, I’d totally make her this quiche, and probably some cookies, and maybe some fresh bread…
So what do you do for a friends when she moves into a new home? Well of course you throw her a house warming. and while the girls and I couldn’t help Ashton unpack, we are able to throw a little virtual love her way. So go tell her hello and seriously those Brownies, pin them!
